[image]Blizzard in southern Chile - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data obtained from the team.
An early winter blizzard blanketed the Andes with snow on May 18, 2005. The storm turned tragic when nearly 400 soldiers got lost in the mountains. As of May 26, news reports say that 34 of the soldiers died and 11 remain missing. It is Chile’s largest peace-time military loss.The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this false-color image of the snow-covered region on May 25, 2005, as the clouds began to clear...

[image]Phytoplankton bloom off Chile - Jeff Schmaltz
A phytoplankton bloom creates a vibrant blue cloud off of the coast of Chile. Phytoplankton are tiny, microscopic plants that form the base of the food web in marine ecosystems; they are consumed by zooplankton, or microscopic animals, which in turn are eaten by variety of fish, whales, and birds. Often blooms such as this one are fed by the upwelling of nutrients, which are occur when currents beneath the surface reach the coastline and are forced to the surface, carrying minerals towards the s...

In northwestern Peru, the Sechura Desert illustrates the hyper-arid conditions created along the west coast of Peru and northern Chile by the cold ocean currents welling up along the coast. These cold waters provide little in the way of evaporation that would ultimately end up as rain, and deserts like the Sechura (southwest of center) are the result. Intermingled with the dry barren landscape are rivers and streams that run out of the High peaks of the Andes, bringing pockets of water and veget...

The northern part of this true-color MODIS image of Chile (left) and Argentina (right) dramatically illustrates the "rain-shadow effect" caused by the Andes Mountains. Moist air from the Pacific Ocean (left) moves eastward up the slopes of the Andes, and it cools as it climbs the mountains. The cooling causes the moisture to condense into clouds, snow or rain. Like a burden too heavy for the wind to carry up and over the mountains, the snow or rain will fall on the western slopes of the Andes...
